ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS...I am a UPenn-trained, fully licensed and boarded psychiatrist. I help people resolve psychological or psychiatric problems that keep them from fully enjoying their lives. Some of my patients struggle with anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic. Others have trouble coping with stress arising from major life events, grief, or relationship difficulties. Some simply wish to understand themselves better or to live more intentionally.
